In psychology, pornography addiction refers to the repetitive and obsessive observation of pornography. Pornography addiction can debilitate a person, leaving them unable to participate in a normal romantic relationship, and in some cases, lead to violent sexual crimes. An expert on the subject has commented, "Pornography addicts have a more difficult time recovering from their addiction than cocaine addicts, since coke users can get the drug out of their system, but pornographic images stay in the brain forever." 
Although at the time there is no consensus among mental health professionals about the dangers of porn or the use of the term pornography addiction, the DSM IV-TR does not list many other obvious and debilitating disorders, like homosexuality, out of a respect for political correctness.
